VS 2010 - Team Foundation Server 2010 - How to work on a project

Hi and thinks,

I am very new to:
VS 2010
Team Foundation Server 2010
ASP.Net
C#
etc....

This is most likely a very basic question.

I have:
Taken a current project (SSIS) by using the:
Get Latest Version
Check Out
Options

So far I have:
Pending change = edit
User = my user Id
Latest = Yes
In these colums

QUESTIONS:
how do I work on the project?
How do I get this project into the Solutions Explorer Or Team Explorer?
Do I need to have the project in the SE Or TE to work on the project?
Is it just a matter of double clicking on the project and have the code appear?
How do you know that you are working on the local project and not the Team Foundation Server project?

I have done a little work in the VS 2008 using SSIS and it looks nothing like what I am use to...

Thanks...

I'm not sure what you mean. If the "Pending Changes" shows "edit", then you are already working on the code. "edit" means you have checked out that file (among others) and have made modifications to it. Those modifications are not yet available on the server, though. They won't be available until you actually do a "check in".

I have done some work using the VS 2008 with SSIS.

This VS 2010 Team Foundation Server looks nothing like what I have worked with.

On VS 2008 when you open a package it has images that look like "Flow-charts"
and
Execute SQL Task Editor
Data Flow
Execute Package Task Editor

See attachment.

Did this change in 2010?

This is C# code that I am now looking at but thought it would be more in the Script Task section???

Maybe I am just not opening correctly???

Thanks

OK, SSIS stuff, in my experience, has to be opened up with BIDS. You can check the file out in VS 2010, but you would have to modify it in BIDS (or VS2008 has a plugin that is BIDS-like, I believe; I think there is an updated plugin for VS2012, but I never got it to work, myself).

I see:

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 does not support Business Intelligence Development Studio Integration Services, Report Services and Analysis Services projects for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2. To work around this issue, you can install Visual Studio 2008 alongside Visual Studio 2010 on the same machine and then open the Business Intelligence Development Studio projects in Visual Studio 2008.
 

Wow looks like I need VS 2008???

For SSIS, I believe so. If you have VS2012 (or will be moving to it at some point), you might look at the following install:

Maybe you'll have better luck than I did (though I didn't really try too hard!).

I also do have VS2008

But it looks like it is doing the samething as VS2010

Maybe I am just opening incorrectly???

When I tried on VS2008 it asked for the "Team Foundation Server Name"

So I used the one from VS2010

It again shows up under "Source Control"

In Source Control I see the extensions:
dtsx
cs
csproj
etc...

I am very new to all this...

Do I somehow select the .dtsx
and bring it into the souce Explorer / Team Explore side???

I am missing some steps on how to work on a "Team Foundation Server" project

Thanks

Have you connected VS2008 up to your TFS server?

I also do have VS2008
But do you have the SSIS tools installed for it?

Go to Help->About Microsoft Visual Studio. Under the "Installed Products" heading you should see an entry for the SSIS stuff:

So I do have the all that you have selected in red..

So this looks like I have it installed

must be I am not access correctly???

These are the steps I do:

Add Existing Team Project...

Click "Server"

Click "Add"

Put the name of the Server
Select all Or Select the project

Then I get:

Team Explorer:
Name of the Server that I added
Name of the Team Project that I selected when adding the Server
Work Items Folder
Documents Folder
Reports Folder
Builds Folder

and then Source Control

I select "Source Control"

Which bring it to the Left Windows panel

I then have Folders in the Left most window

I select the project that I did a:
GET
Check Out

In the middle panel is were I see the:
Pending change = edit
User = my user Id
Latest = Yes

I guess here is were I get confused???

I think I should be looking for something that was stated in:
ID: 39976237
???

When you check the files out from TFS from within VS 2008, how are you doing so? Have you tried, from within Source Control Explorer, double-clicking the solution file (.sln file) for that team project?

When I check the files out:

Did not know that I should select extension with .sln
So I did a
Right click and select GET Latest Version
Right click and select Check Out
for the .sln extension

So I just did a Undo pending changes to start all over again, this took away any:
Pending change = edit
User = my user Id
Latest = Yes
I guess you only do a "Check In" when you want to upload a working project?

That I had before...

So what you are saying is that when I do a:
Get Latest Verision
Check Out

It should have all the TASK available for SSIS???

Is there any special order for Checking Out???

I noticed that the .sln extension is in a master folder and all the other extensions are in the sub folders is that correct???
dtsx
cs
csproj
etc...

So VS2008 would not let me even open the .sln project

So I used VS2010
Right clicked the .sln and did a "Check Out"
then double clicked the .sln
ran the conversion
and thing are starting to look more like what I have seen in the past

when I am done I will do a "Undo Pending Changes"

Yes, when you want to commit your changes and make them available to other developers in your project, you check in your changes.

Is there any special order for Checking Out???
Usually if you double-click the .sln file it will check out files for the solution.

I noticed that the .sln extension is in a master folder and all the other extensions are in the sub folders is that correct???
That would depend on however the person who set up the project laid it out. It can vary.

when I double click the .sln extension in VS2008 it comes up with a verision conflick
Ok, then someone made the solution in VS 2010. You can still check it out with 2010. If you do that, you can then open up the Solution Explorer. You can right-click the .dtsx file you are interested in, and then select "Copy Path". Then open up VS2008, and do File->Open. Paste in the path you copied. If it does not open in "SSIS view", then perhaps your SSIS install is incomplete or corrupted.
